Low-emission Microturbine Systems from Captsone and CPS

Microturbines recover energy in a wide variety of consumer, commercial and industrial applications.

Capstone Turbine Corporation is a leading producer of low-emission microturbine systems, and was the first to market commercially viable microturbine energy products.

Capstone Turbine has shipped over 5,000 Capstone MicroTurbine(R) systems to customers worldwide. These award-winning systems have logged millions of documented runtime operating hours.

Greener Transportation

Capstone Turbine is a member of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's Combined Heat and Power Partnership, which is committed to improving the efficiency of the nation's energy infrastructure and reducing emissions of pollutants and greenhouse gases.

A UL-Certified ISO 9001:2000 and ISO 14001:2004 certified company; Capstone is headquartered in the Los Angeles area with sales and/or service centers in the New York metro area, Mexico City, Nottingham, Shanghai, Singapore and Tokyo.

Capstone C65 and C30 Microturbines Integrated into Electric Supercar and Sports Crossover Vehicle

Velozzi, a Los Angeles-based car designer and manufacturer, will become the first auto company to integrate Capstone's ultra-clean C65 and C30 microturbines into a electric supercar and a crossover vehicle.

Velozzi vehicles are the first production cars to be constructed with carbon fiber Nano tubes. Carbon Nano tubes increase the mechanical properties of vehicle components by 40 percent, which improves the performance of each part while reducing the vehicle's overall weight. Most materials used in the Velozzi cars are reusable, which decreases the Velozzi vehicles' overall carbon footprint.

The Velozzi Supercar will be powered by a 770-horsepower AC-induction electric motor charged by an on-board Capstone C65 microturbine. The supercar is designed to accelerate from 0-60mph in just three seconds and reach a top speed of over 200 mph, according to Velozzi.

The SOLO will be a lightweight electric crossover with an on-board 30-kilowatt Capstone microturbine that will charge the crossover's batteries and super capacitors while in operation or at rest.

Zero Emission Waste Heat Recovery Generator for Landfill Energy Recuperation

An agreement with Calnetix Power Solutions Inc. (CPS) not only broadens Capstone's product line and distribution channel but also brings Capstone 26 additional technology patents to their 98 U.S. patents, according to Mark Gilbreth, Capstone's Executive Vice President of Operations and Chief Technology Officer.

The CPS stand-alone recuperator and combustion designs will help Capstoe provide lower cost, smaller footprint, low emission solutions in the hybrid electrical vehicle markets.

Capstone will also have exclusive rights to sell the CPS zero emission waste heat generator for all microturbine applications and for applications below 500kW where the source of heat is the exhaust of a reciprocating engine used in a landfill application.

"The 125kW waste heat recovery generator can be directly fired by the exhaust of six Capstone C65's or two Capstone C200's to provide over 500kW of clean and efficient green power when an end use customer has no other economic use for the thermal energy," said Jim Crouse, Capstone's Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing. "The ability to harness 125kW of additional exhaust driven electricity will add over 7% to the total system efficiency of our current products and make Capstone even more competitive in the landfill, digester and other markets," added Crouse.

This licensing agreement moves CPS and Capstone from a competitive relationship to a collaborative relationship to leverage the combined companies' microturbine and waste heat recovery technologies.
